Yeah, although I'd be okay with 1080p.you mean 4k tv?
Seyba, switching modes isn't required in most scenarios. I'm using Game mode right now for its low lag and like shadowj said, text looks great so I have no reason to switch to PC mode. You do not have to switch to 4:4:4 so that text is legible. All it does is improve the quality of red text, which is not perfectly sharp in Game mode. How often do you read red text? For me it's not anywhere close to being often enough to switch modes.
Got an update.
I removed my r9 280x in favor of a GTX 970 so I can take advantage of HDMI 2.0. Drove me crazy I was spending $330 for this, but was told worth it. Purchased an HDMI 2.0 cable (6ft) from Amazon and got it setup today. Now running RGB Full at 60hz instead of 30hz. Is there a difference? HECK YES. The TV now definitely feels more like a monitor. The key types feel more responsive and moving a mouse has become super smooth. I couldn't stand that I felt half-retarded with mouse movement on 30hz, but now where I want/expect the mouse to go it goes.
In short, definitely recommend getting 60hz capable card and cable if using TV as workstation. It's pretty much a must.
Thanks for the help!
I've had a 48JS9000 for a few months. Love everything about it except its stand. I've wanted to find a way to lower it to alleviate my neck strain from looking up constantly. This guy named Barnacules Nerdgasdm has a YT channel for all things related to computers. He can be odd and annoying, but this video has him replacing the stands on his 50" Samsungs with adjustable mounts. I bought one (Amazon.com: Universal TV Stand / Base + Mount for 32" - 60" Flat-Screen Televisions by Pro Signal: Electronics) and it works great. He used the mounts to raise his TVs, but I was able to drop mine to just about a half inch off the desk. Makes a big difference in my viewing comfort.
The video for anyone interested:
Here's a fix from the big Samsung 4K thread. It worked for me and a lot of others.Thanks for the guide. Does anyone elses TV disconnect and reconnect to windows when the power is turned off causing all windows to reset. Is there any way to prevent this. I want it to work like sleep mode on a regular monitor, or at least stay connected when turned off.
TVs are better because of their advantage in size, and for the other things TVs offer. Monitors are going to have better input lag, frequency, and PC necessities. When it comes to TVs we try to find the best we can find, and this series Samsung is making has a lot more pros than cons. In PC mode, it has 4:4:4 (makes text and other things look better, is considered standard on monitors,) 60hz, and okay input lag. In Game mode, it only has 4:2:2, has 60hz, and very good input lag. One can only hope television manufacturers someday realize that PC usage from the couch and using a TV as a monitor is a market they want to appeal to.So are these Samsung 4k TVs better than those 4k monitors or something? I thought TV is always bad for gaming on PC?

I still wish someone would take a stab at my previous question, where I asked if the JU7500 or similar series are currently the best we can do at the time, compared to my decade-old XBR2.

Yea but they do make big size monitors that are 40"+, they have 43", 49", and 55" monitors on Ebay from those Korean brands. You guys never heard of them? So I don't see a reason why to buy these SAmsung TVs over those Korean monitors?
Screw the couch. I just want to maximize desktop real estate from standard desktop (~2.5ft?) distances!
Honestly, to me, PC use from the couch sounds like an awful experience. The fact that I have an ergonomically proper desk, an desk chair is one of the big pro's of my desktop, as compared to other computing solutions. I don't understand why anyone would game or do general PC use from the couch when a proper desk is so much better!
Shut the door to the office, get rid of all interruptions, and focus and do your thing, with perfect mechanical keyboard and mouse input, unencumbered by terrible wireless keyboards, touch pads and remotes.
That's my philosophy
If a 40+" 4k monitor existed, I would likely have oped for that, but short of buying off-brand Korean trash direct shipped or from shady importers, such a thing does not exist, so I went with the Samsung TV.
Then I can tell you that you are totally wrong. There are many ppl that bought those Korean monitors and did their reviews. If they're all trash panels, then I wouldnt even recommend them here to you guys.
Like are you guys still in the basement or something? Like a lot of ppl who actually spent their own money and bought those Korean monitors and have been happy with them.
In fact, a brand named Microboard actually use a good panel (not a knock off or B grade quality panels) for their monitors but sell them a lot cheaper comapre to brand like LG.

Not a firmware issue but a Windows one: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2625567/
To fix. In Regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\COntrol\Graphics Drivers\Configuration
Find the entries that starts with SIMULATED and your monitor string. If you don't know which one, change all of them. Go to the first subfolder 00, and find the keys: PrimSurfSize.cx and change to hex "f00," and PrimSurfSize.cy hex value "870." That should change the default monitor size to 3840 x 2160 which will no longer resize and move your windows to the upper left corner.
My goal is to be able to game in 3D. I am looking for a TV setup that will allow me to play at 60fps with 4k resolution.
How do the OLED TVs from LG and other manufactures compare to the high end samsung 4k TVs?
A few ?s: are the following issues on these samsung tv options as a desktop monitor;
-input lag; i know this one is bound to be higher than standard monitors but at what point do people feel it becomes unacceptable for use as a pc?
I didn't think that was currently possible due to bandwidth limitations?
Stunning picture, but they aren't perfect. I believe there are still some issues with motion processing and the LG OLEDs have high input lag. I'm hoping my JS9000 will do me over until OLEDs become more ideal for PC gaming.
The best TV Stereo (3D) res you can get is 1/2 4K per eye.
4K per eye doesnt exist for 2 reasons, lack of bandwidth over HDMI as pointed out and nobody makes them.
Then you need enough GPU power to drive it.
Even 1/2 4K per eye is an extreme res.
Although the new NVidia 10xx cards could give similar performance to 4K none stereo.
Older cards take a fair performance hit using stereo in many games.
